I don't know what that is, I never heard of it.

Look I never was one for a lot of alternative or spiritual practices. I am a born skeptic, but if it works for you, more power to you. Life is a difficult enough journey as it is, so "Whatever Gets You Through The Night" is great.

I recieved the tape free in the mail as a promo, and we found it relaxing, so we utilized it and it worked for us. I'm glad we had it, it was a very positive experience, and, for us, it was an integral part of 2 of the greatest days in our lives, so, even now, 20 yrs later, we will always view the piece fondly.

'Yamantaka' is an album Mickey made in 1983 with Henry Wolff and Nancy Hennings (Tibetan Bells l & ll). Kinda in the newage camp, but very nicely recorded. I rather liked it when it first came out, but a recent listening didn't quite pull me in like it used to.

Wow. That one totally passed me by. There was me thinking you were referring to some Buddhist death terminator, which, on reflection, would have been a fairly left-field addition to the thread, and there you were actually referring to another affair of the Hart. I got that one wrong. I apologise.

That was over my head as well. In general, I'm not a big Mickey fan.

Rationality is in the eyes of the beholder.

A lot of people would say that the devotion that's displayed in this forum towards a band, a guitarist and their music is irrational as well.

Irrationality pretty much defines the human condition.

This thread is crying out for female input ... anyone who thinks childbirth is, er, "meditative" - um, no, guys. No.

My wife had a mantra - "EpEhDurAL. EpEHDural". Unfortunately, she didn't get it and it was quite natural - a lot of blood, sweat and tears.

Yeah "natural" isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Oh, she finds it quite often in a bottle of red and right now I'm sure she's working her way through many a sip of Becherovka, a Czech liqeur.

I am most assuredly not on the meditative end of the spectrum. One of my abiding memories of the childbirth process is of being fixed by a beady 'this is all your fault' glare by the imminently mother-to-be and thinking to myself 'roll with the punch, just roll with the punch...'

You were probably lucky it wasn't a literal punch :)
